Do you have a PASSION for


Working with animals is truly a rewarding experience. But, it’s not all perfectly behaved, adorable puppies and kittens. It’s hard work. We handle all types of animals ranging from Dogs & Cats, Small Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, and more! Each animal has their own unique needs, care requirements, training levels, quirks, and personality. Plus, every Pet Owner has their own routine and preference on how their pets are handled. We provide the best quality of care we can according to each client’s request. Our client’s happiness is just as important as their pets happiness.

Our work isn’t just playing with animals all day. We take care of our clients homes and property as well. Also, caring for their pets often requires more than just walks, feeding, and scooping litter. It’s cleaning up messes & accidents, providing comfort when pets are sad, scared, or stressed, helping clients with training, medical care for special needs pets, and much much more. While their pets happiness is important, their mental and physical health is equally as important. This requires us to have a good understanding of their behavior and basic first aid. We need to be able to recognize signs of a stressed, scared or anxious dog so we handle them in a way that it doesn’t escalate into a bite or escape. We need to recognize subtle signs of illness and injury and provide basic medical treatment or know when to get them to a vet ASAP in an emergency.

Our clients put their complete faith and trust in us. They expect their home & pets to be in the exact same shape as they left. A lot of responsibility comes with that. If you feel this is the right fit for you, and meet the requirements listed under this section – Please fill out the application below. We’d love to chat with you more!
